Bill O’Reilly is not a Catholic (And So Can You!)

December 8, 2012

Sorry, I couldn’t resist modifying FFRF’s title to be a humorous reference to Stephen Colbert. I hope he won’t mind.

Anyway, this is a fantastic article about what the Catholic church requires for someone to call themselves a Catholic. According to church doctrine, if you don’t meet the requirements, you are not a Catholic. Read the article and try coming up with a guess of how many of the world’s 1.2 billion self-proclaimed Catholics are really Catholic under church dogma. I’m guessing the number of true Catholics is actually 2 or 3 orders of magnitude smaller.

Bill O’Reilly is not a Catholic, and neither are you!

Just on the very very off chance that Stephen Colbert or one of his staff actually (dare I say it) inadvertently stumble across my blog, I’ll plug Colbert’s book with the reference for my hybrid title in hopes of appeasing his lawyers him.

However, here is the great lie, a huge and deliberate sin of omission of which you may be unaware.

ACLU — Too Liberal?

October 7, 2007

I hear people state on blogs and at work that the ACLU is too liberal. This is the reason they do not join. Since the sole charter of the ACLU is to defend the constitution of the United States, I tend to interpret such statements as indicating that the constitution is too liberal. However, when pressed for the reasons that people feel the ACLU is too liberal, the number one reason for this belief appears to be gun control.

Here is the ACLU’s statement on gun control. Please read it before continuing.
